Dear Wikimedian,

Many people use Wikipedia as their first point of reference for their school research projects and general update on daily subject topics. The Wikimedia Foundation which runs Wikipedia would like to find out from you through a workshops which will be held in Johannesburg and Cape Town, how can they improve Wikipedia's user interaction and how can they support content contribution so that it represent the diverse people who reads it, it's a movement strategy which they aim to reach by year 2030 where Wikimedia content represents everyone who consumes and contributes to it.

These will not be edit workshops but Salon Strategy where participants will discuss and take a short survey afterwards. So, we would like to invite you to take part in this Salon Strategy Survey.

Over the next months Wikipedians around the world will be getting together to be part of this survey, so any ideas you have are very important to us.

Come through!!! Even if you want to listen to how the conversation is going.
